  1. Great work on both pleated creations, wish I could’ve voted for both, but in the end chose the grey as I love the effect of the dual fabric pleat – nice, very nice! Good luck clever lady x


  2. I love the little grey dress, it’s sooo cute 🙂 I think it is my favourite from all the lovely creations in the pleating contest.
    If I hadn’t voted for my own dress first, I would have given my vote for this one. 🙂 And the mixed fabric pleats is a great idea. I have to try it myself.
    Where did you buy the grey polka dot fabric from? I want to get some


    • Thanks Elle, the fabric was from a local shop. I wanted some more myself, but sadly it’s all gone. You’re golden dress was quite special. Well done in the competition. Though I have to say the Origami pleated persimmon by Stitched Together was my absolute favourite. I thought it was stunning and was surprised that it didn’t win.


      • I agree that the persimon dress was very pretty 🙂
        It’s a shame when a favourite fabric is gone and you can’t buy more of it. I’ve been in a sutiation like this.
        Now I hesitate whether or not to buy some Birch flight voile fabric. I quite like two of the colours. I need to buy at least 4 metres, but it comes a bit expensive. I am afraid that if I don’t buy them now, they might be gone in a few months and I would regret it. What a dilemma ………….:)


        • I love the birch flight fabric, but yes very expensive. Where are you getting it from? I’ve only seen it online. I can’t imagine it will be gone in a few months, quite a lot of online fabric stores sell it.
